Unscheduled Breaks are planned during each class session to allow students to stretch and get something to drink. 

These are not set at a formal time allowing teachers to choose a time that best fits the flow of the class.

A Fest Store is open before class in the morning, during lunch and dinner breaks and during a break in evening activities.

The fest store has student and teacher instructional books and recordings and our festival T-shirts.

The fest store takes only cash or checks.  A bank machine is located in town just a few blocks away for those who forget.

Mealtimes are leisurely in order to facilitate community building.  A sound system is set up in the ballroom area and students and faculty are encouraged to share tunes, stories, songs or other entertainments during this time.  It's a great way to meet other students, introduce a mini class, promote your latest recording or conquer stage fright.
